My four year old son loves going to karate with his friends, the facility is clean, modern and the best part is the instruction he receives. Patient, kind and understanding are how I would describe the instructors-great experience!

KC McCloskey

The facility is newly remodeled, clean, and family friendly. The staff is kind and courteous, and the instructors are highly experienced and knowledgeable.

Brittany Belcher

Millcreek Karate is by far the most professional, clean and welcoming academy in all of Erie. Besides being the best all around, they even offer the best deals when they could easily charge more if they wanted to and it’d still be well worth it! We have a long commute from the other side of Erie but the skills, knowledge and friendships he gains keep us coming back! We are extremely picky on where we send our children. We researched and visited several other martial art schools in Erie county before Millcreek Karate opened last summer and we were not impressed with others.. We love sending our son to Millcreek Karate!

This martial arts studio is modern, spacious and very clean. There is plenty of parking available. The instructors are top notch - very patient, kind, accommodating, courteous, knowledgeable and proficient. The instructors are also very innovative in their approach and have amazed me with their ability to adjust the lesson plans to each child's individual needs and capabilities while still enabling them to learn the martial arts curriculum and excel. My 2 children have felt very welcomed at this studio from day one and they love it here. They have excelled significantly and quickly and I could not ask for a better martial arts school!

My son just turned 3 and struggles with anxiety. We thought we would try karate to build his confidence. Today he had a private lesson and they were so wonderful with him. My son can’t wait to go back and instantly LOVED it! I am amazed. He was glowing with confidence after 1 lesson.

We were told our son has adhd in January. My husband took karate so we started looking around. We didn't make it anywhere else. My husband walked in to get some info and was very impressed about pretty much everything. From the class times to how they work with kids with adhd. I was nervous for my son thinking I was going to be told "we can't have him". They have worked with him and I saw a change in him within a week. A WEEK! We absolutely love Millcreek Karate! My son is a happy kid again!

If at first you don’t succeed…

You know how that saying goes, right? Try, try again! And that brings us to our next core tenet of martial arts: perseverance.

Perseverance is what keeps us going when it would be easier to give up. It’s what makes us get up when we fall down – and it often means the difference between success and failure.

Let’s face it. Things have changed in recent years. It used to be that kids had to persevere. They didn’t get rewarded for showing up. They needed to prove themselves to succeed.

But nowadays, there’s a real danger of kids never learning the value of perseverance. If every kid gets a trophy, they start to expect a reward for a minimum effort. And – no surprise – that’s not good for them.

You and I both know that as adults, we don’t get a trophy for showing up to work every day. We’ve got to do our jobs, and do them well, if we want to succeed.

Kids learn perseverance in our classes in a very simple way. As they study martial arts, they are tested on their knowledge. It’s how they earn new belts and new stripes. If they haven’t mastered a level, they won’t be rewarded. It’s simple – and it teaches them something important.

When a child tests for a new belt and fails, it teaches them how to lose gracefully. It also teaches them to get back on the horse. They can test again – and as many times as they need to in order to advance.

We tell them that a failure is a learning opportunity. The feedback they receive is something they can use to improve their performance. And, they also learn that it feels better to be rewarded when you’ve truly worked for something than it does to be rewarded for just showing up.

It’s easy to see how learning perseverance can help kids. It aids them in the classroom, because sometimes they won’t understand a concept and they’ll need to persevere to grasp it. It helps them when they’re learning a new skill because they’ll be able to accept constructive feedback and learn from it.

And for the rest of their lives, knowing how to persevere when things don’t go their way will help them get through difficult times with their self-esteem intact.

This is an important skill. We put a lot of emphasis on perseverance because it matters – people who persevere tend to be more successful than those who don’t. It’s that simple.
